Walk down the quiet corridor infused with the soothing aroma of essential oils, and you’d never believe you’re on CPUT’s usually bustling Cape Town campus. Nestled on the 4th floor of the Science building, you’ll find the Somatology Department’s Wellness Clinic, a haven of serenity where members of the public can take advantage of the skills of students, all at a fantastically reduced rate.

CPUT registration goes digital

One of the BTech: Quality students take part during the online registration pilot project that took place at the Bellville Campus.

CPUT has taken another significant step towards its stated mission of being at the heart of technology in Africa. For the first time in the university’s history, a highly successful pilot project for online registration has been launched. Acting Registrar Nikile Ntsababa says the whole idea behind this is to save time. On a normal day, CPUT is able to register about 1500 students - with online registration it can register at least 5000.

 “At CPUT, we are creating futures - but most importantly we want to create healthy futures.” These were the words of Dean of Student Affairs Cora Njoli-Motale, at the launch of CPUT’s Mobile Wellness Unit on the Bellville Campus on World Aids Day. The state-of-the-art vehicle is testament to the hard work and vision of CPUT’s HIV Institutional Coordinating Committee (HICC) within the HIV/AIDS Unit, and is a fitting symbol of one of the themes of this year’s World Aids Day - universal access to prevention, treatment, care and support.
